The Rustic Chandelier

16 Nov

This is obviously an amazing new trend. Just as I was reading about them in House and Home and the Globe and Mail this weekend I got an email from my truly stylish friend, a  New Yorker transplant, saying “don’t you just love these???”. That I do. The chandelier trend may be dead and gone but this is a great rustic addition to a very modern space…or a rustic addition to a rustic space…either way it’s a win win. Personally I see this with a nice laquered white kitchen and bleach oak wide plank floors. Yes please!

This one is by Arteriors Home and in Vancouver it can be found at The Cross Decor & Design

Check this out!  So often I see these little “coves” in condos that are labeled a den/storage room but in actuality are too big for a coat closet or too small for an office.  This is a perfect solution! Don’t you find yourself just hoping for a blustery fall Saturday? Head to Ikea if the built in’s aren’t in the budget and grab a couple floor pillows while you are at it.  Cozy.
